Sunday Riley is Val Garland’s new backstage secret

Sunday Riley Cara Delavigne

There is a new backstage make up in town and it’s called Sunday Riley. Spotted everywhere at LFW 2013 the Juno Lipid Serum is Val Garland’s go-to for priming the faceSunday Riley at Preen. This season Val has been all about ‘real skin’ looks that appear to have nothing but eye make up. But as we all know No-makeup-makeup is tricky, Val uses the Sunday Riley Effortless Breathable Primer, which is tinted and gives a slight glow, and as it suggests it lets even very sensitive skin breath.

As you can see from the look she created for Preen (model to the left, unfortunately it’s a bit washed out with light I’m afraid) the complexion is lightly perfected, luminous nut not sparkling. Very little contouring, in fact just a blob of blush right on the apple of the cheek.

I leave you with some of the varying faces of Cara Delevigne…it’s why we love her!cara delavigne
